Summary: Friends, family, colleagues, the delivery guy--suddenly everybody is a trove of advice, much of it contradictory and confusing. With dire warnings of what will happen if baby is fed on demand and even direr warnings of what will happen if he isn't, not to mention hordes of militant "lactivists," cosleeping advocates, and books on what to worry about next, modern parenthood can seem like a minefield. In busy Mom-friendly short essays, Wilder-Taylor delivers the empathetic straight dirt on parenting, tackling everything from Mommy & Me classes to attachment parenting. She combines practical tips with humor and honesty, assuring women that they can be good mothers and responsibly make their own choices. This antidote to trendy parenting texts and scary case studies provides support, encouragement, and common-sense advice.--From publisher description.
